INSIDE OUT: SUMMER 2020

Six original stories making a drama out of staying inside. Developed during the lockdown of Spring 2020 with actors using everything from mobiles phones to laptops to get creative while observing social distancing rules.

EPISODE 1: The Couch Concert by John Pattison

Welcome to singer/songwriter Sandy’s first ever gig. ‘The Mucky Duck’ pub has lost its roof and Scarborough’s local acts are performing online to raise funds for a new one. Both Sandy and organiser Steve have a secret or two they’d rather keep to themselves. But if the show must go on, it doesn’t mean it has to go according to plan…

EPISODE 2: U Ok Hun? by Michelle Watts

The sun's out, the sky is blue but Cherry the childminder can't leave her house yet. Where ARE her chiddlers this morning? And is it all Vicki Dinnington's fault?

EPISODE 3: Choices by Paul Beck

Mistakes. Zoe’s made far too many of them in her life. But maybe an obscene parrot and an unexpected email will give her chance to finally put things right.

EPISODE 4: Flo & Mabel by Kate Woodward-Hay

Flo’s life is perfect: her children have flown the nest and she is proud of them. On her own at home with Mandela the cat she is blissfully happy ... or is she? If so, why has Mabel suddenly come back into her life?

EPISODE 5: The Call by Rosie Larner

Kath and Lou haven’t visited their daughter in five years. But how can Lou fly out to New Zealand when he is terrified to walk out of his own front door?

EPISODE 6: Lifesigns by Paul Spencer

Kat is ‘Star Commander’, brave explorer of space. But she never expected to face her greatest challenge: being asked out on a date.

 We’ll be back in November 2020 with six more plays continuing the stories we started during the summer.
